Hub and I went to see a preview of Unstoppable last night.  I like previews: they start early, no adverts, and I’m home by eight-thirty – the perfect night out.  Well it would have been, if it hadn’t been for my guilt about leaving Spud.  We haven’t left him home alone at night since, well, ever.  We never go out, so how could we?  I felt like one of those women who go off to Turkey for a month leaving their three kids home alone with just a packet of crisps and a box of matches.

I got free tickets from seefilmfirst but my fee is a review of the film, so here goes:  

I loved it; the Hub thought it was the naffest thing he’d ever seen.  I thought it was tense and exciting; the Hub wondered why train drivers the world over aren’t picketing outside every cinema where it’s showing.  I think Denzel Washington looks good even in a woolly hat…by then I had lost interest in the Hub so I don’t know if he feels the same.

I recommend you sign up to seefilmfirst: they send regular invites to all kinds of films and shows.  I don’t think you have to blog about them unless you can, and you get to be in bed by nine: what’s not to love?

    Lucky old you two. And Spud gets an unsupervised evening to enjoy. As you say, what’s not to like.
    We almost never go out in the evening, and not much more frequently during the day. But a couple of weeks ago I won two tickets to a choral concert in the local Polifolia Festival. The choir was from Albania – only 24 of them, but they managed a quality of sound and singing I’ve not heard in a lifetime of singing in excellent choirs. Magical.

    Apparently, some of this movie was filmed locally.

    “Inspired by true events” *always* leaves me wondering, especially after seeing this movie’s commercials.

    Thank you for your continual reading and support this year!

      I Googled it because I was also put off by the ‘inspired’ and it seems to be true in its essentials – though the train’s speed was much lower.

      I’m glad to keep reading – you’re interesting!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
